Kudos to a clever prankster for putting up a survey on the Tech website noting “serious concerns” about the use of Buzz as a mascot. For example, “faculty in the biosciences are embarrassed by the fact that we have an anatomically incorrect mascot for our mascot (Buzz only has four “legs”).”
The survey asks what Buzz might be replaced with, with the options including a robot, a bulldog-killing robot and, my favorite, a genetically engineered 5’4” actual yellow jacket.
A week after a pair of unimpressive losses, Georgia Tech regained a bit of its footing. The Yellow Jackets delivered an emphatic 87-57 thrashing of East Tennessee State on Saturday afternoon at McCamish Pavilion to head into their final exam week on an up note.
